Posted in Uncategorized at 3:26 pm by Becky

Well, this link love comes a little late in the day. K’s birthday was this week. We had a slumber party last night and family party today. Needless to say, mama is a little tired. Worth it, thought – a fun time was had by all. With a 7 year old boy in the house, […]

Here is an early link love.  On The Simple Woman, Peggy is doing a giveaway to help with spring cleaning.  Just in time, too.  With all the sun that is now shining in our windows, I can see how much I need to spruce up!  I love Mrs. Meyers cleaning products – non-toxic, and then […]

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:52 pm by Becky

I’ve always been a dog person. My mom is allergic to cats, so we never had one growing up. We did have dogs, though – wonderful, incredible dogs. I couldn’t imagine not having dogs in the family. When Hubby and I were first married, we bought a condo. I didn’t want to get a dog […]

03.05.08 | Where are the fish?

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:04 pm by Becky

We have a waterfall and pond in our backyard stocked with goldfish and koi.  You will notice from the picture that they seem to be MIA.  They have a cave they can go into, but they have never all been in there for hours.  We called our local fish store, and they said we might […]

Well, I thought we were done with sickness here.  I was wrong.  Cue the violins.  It’s time for a pity party.  Just me, my throat coat tea, and Coldeeze.  Sheesh.

02.27.08 | Oranges

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:16 pm by Becky

One of the Christmas traditions in my family was that you got an orange (and an apple) in your stocking.  It is actually one of the things I looked forward to each year.  I love oranges. They have been on sale lately.  So I have have been buying them by the 10-pound bag full.  Did […]
